Google Pixel 2 XL hit with unresponsive edges issue

14 November, 2017, 01:24 | Author: Pamela Mathis

There was also some unresponsiveness on the left-hand side in the video. Now, the latest issue that is annoying some users is the device's edges being unresponsive to touch.

A new wave of complaints revealed that some Google Pixel 2 XL owners were having difficulty with the smartphone's display, which at this point could no longer be considered a surprise.

About a week ago, a post in the Pixel User Community forum kicked off a discussion about the apparent lack of responsiveness along the curved edges of the Pixel 2 XL screen.

"The touchscreen works while sliding my finger along the edge works, but when touching it directly, it doesn't detect that touch along the edge", wrote Deathsoldier11 on the Pixel User Community forum. Nevertheless, it is comforting to know that Google will fix the problem in the future.

Trump on North Korea crisis: I'd never call Kim 'short and fat'
Trump followed up his weird tweet by telling reporters that it would be a "good thing" for him and dictator to become friends. He said he doesn't know if that friendship will develop, but added it would be "very, very nice if it did".


Apparently, this issue is a side effect of the accuracy of Google's software when it comes to repudiating accidental touches. To solve the problem, Google has promised its users that soon a software update will be released consulting the display issues faced worldwide.

As we can see from the videos, the combined OIS and EIS does a pretty impressive job of stabilizing the video shot with Google's Pixel smartphones. Cautious customers might want to go for the smaller HTC-made Pixel 2 instead.

For the Pixel 2 XL users who do not use edge gestures, this issue may not have impacted their day to day usage as much. On my own personal Pixel 2 XL, the behavior is very similar, but with instances where taps do end up working as intended.

The Pixel Buds mark Google's first attempt to dabble in the wireless earbuds category.
